Just when we’ve finally recovered from our New Year’s celebrations, some Russian oligarchs are just getting started.

With the Orthodox New Year on Monday, we hear Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov is heading to the Courchevel ski resort in France, where he owns a chalet worth more than
$100 million . . . even though the swanky Alpine town seems like bad luck for the billionaire.

In 2007, he was arrested around New Year’s in connection with an investigation into an international prostitution ring after bringing in a jet full of models for a raging three-day party.

No charges were filed.

Meanwhile, we hear Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich’s $500 million yacht Eclipse is still in St. Barts.

In years past, he held star-studded bashes on the island that included guests Paul McCartney and Martha Stewart. But we’re told his island manse is still being rebuilt after 2017’s Hurricane Irma.

Russian New Year’s bashes will also be held in New York, including at Maison Vivienne, which is expecting models Alina Baikova and Valery Kaufman.
